Two Former Buffs Could Join CU Coaching Staff

With the departure of Eric Bieniemy and John Embree to UCLA, the Buffs are not only looking to replace coaches, but two strong recruiters as well.

Stories are beginning to emerge that two former Buffs may soon join Gary Barnett's staff.

When you lose a guy like Eric Beineimy, you not only lose a strong position coach with a passion for the game, but you also lose a strong recruiter. The same could be said about the departure of John Embree. But with the two joining Karl Dorrell's staff at UCLA, the Buffs may be looking at two former CU stars to replace them.

Buffs Insider learned late yesterday that former CU quarterback Darrian Hagan is being considered for the vacant running back coach position.

Hagan played for the Buffs from 1989-1991 and led the Buffs to back to back Big 8 Championships and Orange Bowl appearances. He was injured in the second National Championship game and replaced by Charles Johnson, who led the Buffs to a 10-9 victory over Notre Dame and Colorado's first National Championship.

Another Buff rumored to be in the mix for a coaching position is former defensive standout Alfred Williams. Williams, who is currently living in Houston, would strictly be a recruiting coach.

With his passion for Colorado and athletics, Williams could be just the guy to replace the firey Bieniemy.

Buffs Insider will continue to report on this story.
